High static and voices in head



New member

Hi forum,

For a couple of years now I have been experiencing several symptoms that I'd like to get to the bottom of:

- Persistatnt, agonised screaming
- Loud static
- Erratic suggestions eg. Violence / running / escaping
- Expressions of anger/frustration eg. curse words, indistict aggressive shouting

The symptoms are almost exclusively present when I'm under extreme stress, although the static comes in in less stressful situations eg. if I get stuck in a train of thought or if I'm stuck in a situation I don't want to be in in everyday life eg. Being talked down upon, being present with relatives, etc

I think I may have a type of schizophrenia, and if anyone can shed some light upon this I'd be happy to give more information

Thanks, Oliver

Hi and :welcome:

First of all, we can't diagnose anyone, very few of the people here on the forum are medical professionals, and if you really want a diagnosis you will need to see a psychiatrist. That said, lots of folks here have experience of this kind of thing, so hopefully we can give you a few pointers.

I'd start by saying that voices and noise in the head is not necessarily cause for a psychiatric diagnosis. If you look at Marius Romme's work you'll find that many people hear voices and many of them have never contacted a psychiatrist. If you were to go to a psychiatrist on the other hand he would probably find a name for your condition and prescribe you some medication which might help. So that's something to consider, it has pluses and minuses as nearly all the medications have side effects.

The loud static is also not that unusual, I have some experience with that. It can be just heard, or also felt, on the tongue or on the skin or inside the body.

I'd suggest looking in the hearing voices sub forum, there are some good threads there on coping strategies if nothing else.

Good luck!
